Loc Style: Curly lochawk...

I don't know what it is but straight locs just don't do it for me anymore. I can deal with them for a week or so but after that I'm itching to do some kind of style. I usually always opt for the curls because curls last FOREVER. Seriously! If I don't finger comb them, they can last for at least 3 weeks...even with intense work-outs.

I think I've done this look before. I love it! And it's really easy to do. I flat twisted two rows of locs on each side of my head and secured them with rubber bands.


I used a few bobby pins in the front to make a bit of a curly bang...


The good thing about the bang is that it can also be gathered to make a swoop or hump. Since it's hot as balls (hahahaaaa!) in Florida right now, I'm not digging the locs in my face, so it'll probably be a hump by the end of the day.

And...ta-da!



Very simple! And I love this look because it works for the when I'm trying to be all business professional AND on the weekends when I want to be a little funky.

Peace B,

I am feeling you on the curls. I am 7.5 months into my loc journey and I am rocking (and loving) the curls. I'm actually currently wearing a style similar to your curly lockhawk. As you said, they last forever and help minimize the fuzzies (although I don't really mind them).

Stay blessed and loced,

LaKisha
